  • Best 10 States For NYSC Service In Nigeria

Having seen different states and how much they pay Corps members, in this post we are going to reveal the best 10 states for NYSC by putting other factors into consideration.

Below are the best ten(10) states to serve as a corps member

1. Lagos State:
Lagos is the best in the list. Lagos is the former Capital of Nigeria, the standard of living normal. Lagos as the land of opportunities, there will be lots of job and business opportunities available for you; you can easily engage yourself into something after your service year. In Lagos there are thousands of recruiting companies where you can submit your CV. There is a saying that anything you do in Lagos and do it fine, that you will make money from it.

2. Abuja FCT
Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, the cost of living may be high, but you will enjoy the place. Though Abuja does not pay state allowance. But most of the private companies in Abuja pay big money to corps members serving in their establishment. There are also job opportunities, and almost everywhere is developed, security is very tight.

3. Kano State
Kano state is very good, things are very cheap, making it possible for savings. In Kano you can save most of your earnings.
A friend of mine who finished from Kano was even claiming the place is better than Lagos. You might want to give it a shot

4. Ogun State
Wow, Ogun made the list. You can ask people who finished from there. In Ogun everywhere is a place of Opportunity.

5. Plateau State
This is one of the best place you can serve. You will live large and still have savings. Normal standard of living, cheap food stuffs, cheap transportation and more…

6. Akwa Ibom State
Akwa Ibom is among the best. State allowances for Corps Members are high to compare to other states. Generally, things are good in Akwa Ibom, ask those who finished from the state.

7. Enugu State
Enugu state is very good for NYSC in terms of security. Everything is orderly especially those serving in towns. You will enjoy serving in Enugu.

8. Rivers State
Someone reading this is already jumping to testify Rivers State is one of the best. Though Rivers state has stopped paying corps members state allowance, but the state is good. If you are opportune to service in porthatcurt, you will enjoy it.

9. Cross River State
Calabar is the capital city. You won't regret serving in Cross Rivers.

10. Osun State
Osun made it in the list. It is one of the best. Very peaceful, good electricity and a place to bring any dream to reality.

11. If I am permitted to include another state, I will add Anambra. There are so much opportunities. Anambra is one of the top states that pay high amount as state allowance for corps members.
